I often get verses through e mail and one came that is particularly encouraging today. Christ in you, the hope of glory. Colossians 1:27. Isn’t that great? We have all heard how we have sinned and come short of His glory, Romans 3:23, but the very Spirit of God dwells in us and we have every right as a believer to hope, to truly expect blessings, favor, for things to work and prosper in out lives, because Jesus cried out ” Finished! ” from His cross of shame that should have been ours.
The very same Jesus that died and rose from the dead resides in us by His Holy Spirit. He came to annihilate the enemy’s work in our lives. He has the authority and right and gives it to use to freely use.
Are you struggling today with something? Has confusion caused you to settle for less? You don’t have to! Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God. Romans 10:17 Get your faith motivated and stir the gifts and callings He placed in you.
He created Adam and Eve clothed in His glory. They were flesh and blood, body and soul, but first they were spirits, bathed in the beauty of holiness. The garment was praise and their robe, righteousness. It was the golden shekinah glory that they lost. That is why they were naked and afraid, for they had known no fear, no sin, no evil.
Jesus paid a very dear price for us and we did not deserve Him. You can’t begin to imagine being crucified. But He loved us and wanted us and mad it possible for us to be walking in His Spirit, clothed in His glory once more. Seek His face and expect Him to show you mercy and grace. For indeed, Christ is in us, as believers, and He is our only hope of glory. Rebecca Jones
